LinkedIn Profile

Originally from Auckland, New Zealand, I made the move over to London in 2014 to pursue a fast paced career in the world of recruitment.

Not looking back, I’ve immersed myself in helping technologists secure their next career move – specifically focusing on software engineering across multiple skillsets.

Like all antipodeans who find themselves based in London I am a very keen traveller, foodie and lover of rugby (playing as well as watching from the stands with a pint of lager in hand).

The first box is for the title ('what they say'), the second box is for the testimonial. You need to select a full block of text as 'block quote' (the symbol with the quotes in the edit menu) to make it an independent testimonial. Bold text is used to write the name of the author of the quote.


  • Matt is so much more than a recruiter, he is a true career partner. In my recent hunt for new challenges, I was fortunate enough that Matt reached out to me. From day one, Matt took the time to learn about my interests, what sort of position I was looking for, and the compensation range I was seeking. Moreover, he made himself available outside of his normal work hours (since we are in different time zones) to speak with me at length regarding his clients and available positions, working with me to find the one position we both felt was a perfect match. Matt did not just set up interviews, he guided and coached me through the entire hiring process. He provided me with background information on the organization and the industry, going to so far as to also share with me presentations that some of the interviewers delivered at various conferences, as well as their LinkedIn pages. This allowed me to fully understand the work they were doing and made it easy to engage with everyone I spoke to. When we moved onto the offer stage, Matt was my advocate. His approach was remarkable, and I feel that everyone was able to walk away from the negotiating table a winner. With Matt, I felt like a valued asset and not just another placement, and his commitment and dedication truly shows. When normal recruiters would consider their work done, Matt continued to drive and work with me. Offering advice on a letter of resignation, how to address any potential counteroffers, and touching base with me every step of the way to answer questions or just be a sounding board. If you are looking to take the next step in your career I *firmly* endorse Matt as your partner. He is intelligent, compassionate, a fantastic listener, and is the embodiment of recruitment done right. If you are looking for top talent, Matt has the network and the resources to find you that diamond in the rough.
